AMARAVATI: TDP former Minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao termed it as unfortunate that the Jaganmohan Reddy government was conspiring to implicate BC leader and TDP former Minister Kollu Ravindra in the murder case of YCP leader Koka Bhasker Rao in Machilipatnam.
Umamaheswara Rao condemned what he described as a series of conspiracies by the ruling YCP targetting the backward and weaker sections leaders of TDP.
Addressing a press conference here, the TDP leader said there seemed to be no end to the political vendetta being unleashed by CM Jagan Reddy against the Opposition leaders one by one. For the last 21 days, TDLP Deputy Leader Atchannaiah was being harassed with false cases and arrest. Even the fragile health condition of Atchannaidu was not being considered for sparing him from vicious political victimisation. Senior leader Ayyanna Pathrudu was being harassed with fabricated Nirbhaya case.
Devineni Uma gave a new definition to the YSR Congress Party, saying that Y stands for YV Subba Reddy, S stands for Sai Reddy and R stands for Ramakrishna Reddy. It is well known that the Chief Minister has already distributed all 13 districts for these leaders. YV Subba Rao will rule over 3 districts on behalf of Jagan Reddy. Vijayasai Reddy will act as his deputy in 3 districts and Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy in 5 districts. The trio will be the real power wielders in the state while the State Cabinet and the Ministers would be functioning without field level authority or powers.
The former Minister deplored that the ruling YCP has destroyed and crippled all the Constitutional institutions and established systems leaving no scope for transparency or good governance. Even the mainstream media is not being spared. TV 5 journalists were being harassed by the CID officials in the name of investigations and enquiries. The senior journalists were not being allowed to do their work. One journalist was made to sit in the CID office from morning to evening in order to prevent him from attending his talk shows.
Devineni Uma asserted that the tricks of the Chief Minister would not get success eventually as the people and all sections of leaders were preparing to oppose his anti-development activities with greater force. The TDP would stand in the forefront of the fight and struggle agianst the misure and atrocities of Jaganmohan Reddy in the coming days.
